Re: "its all about ol' black"

NICE!

I have to admit, I was a little Butt Sore you got rid of the Detroit in the rear and put in the True Trac in lieu of keeping the detroit and putting the True Track in the front.

But hey, my Detroit came with my CUCV axles.... and I'm determined to continue to sell myself on the detroit locker. Yes, I'm cheap... and lazy!!!!

Nice rig!!!!

When I added the lift block I opted for the round u-bolts and upper anchor plates seeing I was removing the helper spring pack at the same time and figured a little less to get hung up on.

Re: "its all about ol' black"

New to the board, this is one of the best threads On the entire internet. You are the man for sharing all this tech. I'm going to use your method to put an NV4500 in my '86 K30.

How you liking the Truetrac?

Re: "its all about ol' black"

Lnielson- Thanks for the compliment ;
as for the Truetrac i like it very much and it goes almost unnoticeable for the most part once in a while if i do "S" turn sharp at low speed on pavement it will chirp which reminds me its still there.
I am considering swapping out my front lockrite for the maximizer diff on ebay looks like a Chinese version of truetrac ;but less then half price... good enough for the front diff that is not used too much.
There does not seem to be any reviews or write ups on it that I can find so I may be the first on that keep watching...

Re: "its all about ol' black"

Well I got most of the parts for a rebuild and LSD swap on my 60F.
waiting on a few more and then will tackle this. I will be removing a Powertrax Lockrite and replacing it with a Maxiumizer diff similar to a Truetrac for better street manners.
Heres some pics for now and some part #s.

Re: "its all about ol' black"

I was thinking of replacing the trac lok in my 60, what is your impression of the clone?

Do you happen to know if they make one for the Dana 44?

Only see one for Dana 60 front with 4.56/up numerically ratio though there might be others.
As for impression looks good on bench ; but the shipping box was pretty bad shape {shipped from California}.

Will do video of traction test when installed.

Re: "its all about ol' black"

I just got a response from the ebay seller, I asked what part number for a 60F with 4.56 and a 44F with 4.10.

He replied "not available for 44 and not for use on front axles"

Wondering why they think it wont work on a 60F

Re: "its all about ol' black"

I was looking back through my thread and saw my CHEAP steering shaft upgrade to get rid of the rag joint ;' I forgot to mention.
I found a f/s GM van I believe around 1996 (see pic) . The steering shaft is all enclosed in rubber ,cut it off and remove shaft from van. A slight groove on steering shaft at firewall for pinch bolt is all that was needed for install on d-shaft of ol'black ...voila no more play!


Ironically one from an Astro van fits the first gen S10.
